I’m Quitting Heroing, or Yuusha Yamemasu in Japanese, is an action, adventure, comedy, and fantasy focusing on a post-war world between humans and demons. Earth’s greatest hero has decided to “quit heroing” and surprisingly wants to join the demon army. It is based on the light novel “I’m Quitting Heroing” (Kadokawa Books) written by Quantum and the original character design done by Hana Amano.

The anime adaptation is developed by Studio EMT Squared, an outfit that has produced many other anime such as The High School Life of a Fudanshi, Rainy Cocoa, and The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. The show is being produced with Yuu Nobuta (Saihate no Paladin, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) serving as chief director, Hisashi Ishii (Ame-iro Cocoa: Side G) as the director, and Shigeru Murakoshi (Zombieland Saga, Murenase! Seton Gakuen) overseeing the series composition.

Since Leo’s secret has been revealed to all the major characters, the show has changed its tone to mysterious and grim. The previous episode showed Leo proclaiming to the Demon Queen and her four generals to have a serious battle with him, with their lives at stake. Either they will stop him, i.e., kill him, or he will kill them all and proceed to destroy the entire worlds of both humans and demons. Yes, the ex-hero seems to have gone berserk!

We see Echidna take a drastic step in I’m Quitting Heroing– use an intense spell made only to defeat the hero by an ancient Demon King who had fought the Hero and was defeated. And it is quite literally called “Anti Leo”! This goes to show how ancient and powerful Leo is. With the spell being used in this episode by the queen, it is a “live-or-die” scenario. Because as we know, the “Leo” was created as a bioweapon capable of always learning from his fights and keep getting stronger. If this spell fails, there probably will not be another chance, and Leo will be truly invincible.

Yuusha Yamemasu Episode 11 is filled with a monologue that can make anyone tear up. Leo’s struggle to achieve his purpose in life and continue to be alive versus not becoming the very thing he was created to destroy is pretty riveting. The gradual evolution of time is depicted with smooth, transitional animations. We can feel our hearts being torn apart when we see the circumstances Leo faced and the concluding decisions he had to make for the sake of the innocent population.

The outing also came with a sharp leap in terms of quality of direction and portraying characters’ intents. The subtle changes to the colour tones were extremely successful in portraying Leo’s emotions, without which the episode would have fallen flat. Although not much new progressed in terms of the storyline, we are instead presented with a gut-wrenching episode filled with flashbacks, regrets, and the reality of life.

With the dialogues delivered in low, soul-destroying voice in I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 11, we get to see Leo’s moments of self-reflection and the Demon Queen’s understanding and empathy for him. This episode makes us believe in the duality of Leo’s character- he wants to die but yet does not. Leo has been alone for many, many centuries. With him finally finding people who understand him and worry for him, will this sadly be the end of the greatest Hero who protected all?
